Travel 2 Australia & New Zealand 2018/19

South Pacific Whether you’re travelling around the world or heading to New Zealand, the beautiful islands of the South Pacific always charm and delight. Although traditionally a stopover destination, we are finding that visitors like to stay longer in this idyllic region that offers a lifetime of holidays in itself. Fiji, the Cook Islands and French Polynesia are so easily accessed yet perfectly isolated, and each offer their own unique blend of paradise. Within each destination you will find not only strong cultural bonds, but also a celebration of diversity.
